Looking for the right gift can be challenging. Some people desire practical gifts, while others prefer more of a luxury item. Include Felts Shoes on your holiday places to be and you can take care of both. From shoes that fit the whole family, to comfy slippers and distinctive brand sunglasses, handbags and other accessories, Felts offers a great selection to shop from every day.
Like the large stores, Felts offers the best in brand-name footwear; unlike most of the larger chains, Felts is able to offer their customers two distinct advantages, competitive prices and personalized customer service.
Names that are immediately recognizable such as Nike, Skechers, Adidas and Clarks are just some of the brands of shoes that Felts carries. Hush Puppies fleece-lined slippers make a great stocking stuffer, as does Oakley eyewear, and Crocs are always popular, particularly with the kids. For those that are uncertain, undecided or can’t find the size needed, help is immediately available.
“If we do not have a specific size or color that a customer requires, we can and will make an order for them,” says Tabitha Felts, owner. “Special orders are part of our approach in helping the customer find exactly the right fit.”
Personalized attention to each customer is a facet of business that the Felts stores are determined to prioritize. “We help everyone with their questions about style and fit, and this is often especially helpful to parents with small children,” says Tabitha. “We are confident in our ability to help people because we are knowledgeable about our products.”
As an added bonus, Felts always participates in the city’s Chamber of Commerce holiday program, “Shop Claremore First” Santa Cash program. When shopping the fine merchants like Felts and spending certain dollar amounts, Claremore shoppers will have the opportunity to enter a drawing for cash prizes of up to $5,000. It is just a little extra incentive to shop the stores that are already striving to provide exceptional customer service and product excellence.
Felts Shoes originally opened for business in Tahlequah, Oklahoma in 1939. There are now eight stores in Oklahoma, which primarily carry casual and athletic footwear, in addition to quality brand accessories. Felts is open from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. Monday through Friday, and from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Saturdays. For more information, call (918) 343-9296, or visit the store in the NeMar Shopping Center on Will Rogers Boulevard in Claremore during regular business hours.
